History - Log cabins have an ancient history in Europe, and in America are often associated with first generation home building by settlers.
Construction of sophisticated dwellings built by laying logs horizontally over the top of each other was described by early Roman architects.
Historically log cabin construction has its roots in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. Although their origin is uncertain, the first log structures were probably being built in Northern Europe by the Bronze Age (about 3500 BC).
Log cabins are said to have reached their peak of complexity and elaboration with the American Adirondack-style cabins of the mid-19th century. This style was the inspiration for the iconic United States Park Service lodges.
Now Log cabins are again evolving, The log cabins for sale at Timber Log Buildings Australia combine the traditional charm of timber logs with modern roofing and floors, plus the convenience of all the comforts of a modern home.
Log cabins offer several unbeatable benefits due to the properties of their basic construction material - timber logs.
Energy efficiency - Due to timber's thermal mass, which accounts for the wood's ability to store and release heat throughout the day and night, log homes are great at conserving energy, and maintaining temperatures. This means your home can be kept cool in the summer and warm in the winter without you having to rely so heavily on air conditioning units and central heating.
Green - Log cabin style homes and sheds fit into the "green" lifestyle - If being environmentally conscious is important to you, going with log will be a good fit. We use logs from sustainable forests. Combined with the energy efficiency referenced above, this means that they are very "green".
Quiet - Solid, secure homes that are beautiful, cozy and quiet. Log walls are natural sound insulators too, giving you a well-built home with an unmatched feeling of security.
